Richard Bard draws on his own experiences as a former USAF pilot and cancer survivor to craft compelling characters who risk it all for
love and loyalty. Born in Munich, Germany, to American parents, he joined the
United States Air Force like his father. But he left the service when he was
diagnosed with cancer and learned he had only months to live. He earned a
management degree from the University of Notre Dame and ran three successful
companies involving advanced security products used by US embassies and
governments worldwide. Now a full-time writer, he lives in Redondo Beach,
California, with his wife and remains in excellent health.
